Valuable tips and info from the Applian forums

Hello all!

I seem to be having a problem and am looking for some help...

I am capturing streaming audio and video via Replay Media
Catcher and then convert it to AVI via Replay Converter. My
problem is that my resulting AVI files all seem to have lost
audio/video sync...meaning, in case I am not wording it well,
that the audio that is being spoken is not in sync with the
video. I am not sure if there is something that I am doing wrong
or if there is some sort of configuration that I need to look
into...any help at all would be appreciated.



Hi Michael,

Please try changing the direct show settings for the type of
file that you are converting from. Here's how to do this in
Replay Converter 2:
1. Click on Options.
2. If your conversion is a video file, click on the "Video
Conversion Options" button. If your conversion is an audio only
file click on the "Audio Conversions Options" button.
3. In the Direct Show options dialog box that opens next, find
the file format of the original file that you are converting
FROM. If Direct Show for that format is not checked, please
check it. If it is already checked, then please uncheck it. If
you are unable to find the format of the original file you are
converting in the options, then either check or uncheck the
"Other" check box.
4. Try your conversion again.

Best Regards,

Actually the native format for DVDs is MPEG-2 and not MPEG-4.
So, your AVI file will first need to be converted to MPEG-2
before it can be burned to DVD. Some DVD burning programs will
do that for you and some will not. Our product, Replay Converter
3.0 beta version,
should be able to convert your AVI file and burn it to DVD.

We are thinking of adding Replay Converter with Media Catcher,
so you will be able to do all this automatically.
